Sturrock: New Shrimpers boss

Sturrock: 'Close with a couple but I was adamant I didn't want to panic sign'

It's all the rage now, but Twitter once again has kept us informed and it's all over, no new striker, but we've still got Bilel Mohsni and Anthony Grant and if we are to get a new striker, it will be on loan when the emergency 93-day stuff opens up in a week, still, it could have been a lot worse.!/SUFCRootsHall informed us: 'Quietest deadline day I have ever known for us. Still good to hold onto key players, Sturrock will target loan window in weeks time.'

And it was all confirmed an hour later on the official site with Blues boss Paul Sturrock himself informing us of what had gone on and what might happen in the future.

Luggy told "We've been working hard to try and bring people in but the players we have targeted either didn't want to come down to League Two or went to sides in higher divisions. It was pretty close with a couple but I was adamant I didn't want to panic sign for the sake of it."

So, what about the guy to help up front?

Though we've kept that French Tunisian bloke to throw in as a striker, heard he could be useful. (Blackpool decided James Beattie could do a better job, ridiculous!)

Luggy revealed all: "We've a number of players we are considering when the loan window opens in a weeks time so it isn't all doom and gloom. More importantly though I'm happy to keep everyone here that we have and continue with a settled side - that was very important."
